at bacteria in the lungs. the test has been successful in detecting two types of lung infections in mice. if it works it could significantly reduce the wait time for a diagnosis which can often take weeks. finally this friday heart attack on a plate have you ever heard that expression about a nasty greasy meal or a tasty grease ye meal. the extreme eating list from center of signs and public interest may fit the bill. take for example i hop country fried steak and eggs meal. it looks good. clocks in at 2800 calories as much as eating 20 buttermilk n paniagua cakes. johnny rockettes thinks you are only supposed to eat one meal a day. 1,570 calories for the cheddar double burger with sweet potato fridays. that's the ee gifl rent of four

>> tax fraud appears to be a popular past time in u.n. prisons. a new report by treasurer's department says the irs detected more than 173,000 fraudulent tax returns from inmates last year. that's more than twice the number detected in 2010. some inmates steel identity from obituaries some even use their own but fudge the numbers to try to get much bigger tax refunds they deserve. in 2012 two inmates alone tried to claim more than $1 billion. the good news is the irs says it stopped those two and others from illegally claiming 2.5 billi 2.5 billion in last refunds last year. they are stepping up enforcement but says more needs to be done. $35 million slipped through the cracks and so the irs says it's very successful at detecting and stopping in incorrect refunds when prisoner data is available it adds there are significant challenges getting complete and
consistent data from the multiple jurisdictions involved. still the agency says if committed to enhancing the process is to further minimize prisoner refund fraud. >> it is now 44 after the top of the hour. coming up either he was duped or he duped us. we are looking into the unfolding saga of notre dame's manti te'o and if he can now sue for falling for that hoax. arthur aidala is up next. >> image never having to wash your shirt again. a new t-shirt claims it can do just that. steve doocy see what's coming up on fox and friends. >> that could change everything. you never have to wash your clothes. >> pretty cool. >> kinda. although i don't actually do the laundry at my house. coming up on "fox & friends." lance armstrong is a big fat liar. he admitted to doping last night
